UNI Women lose Kalin for the year


University of Northern Iowa senior point guard Jacqui Kalin will miss the entire 2011-12 season after tearing her ACL during an open gym session. She underwent surgery to repair the ligament on Wednesday.

Kalin, the 2011 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year, has led the UNI women's basketball team in scoring in every season she played. She was the MVC Freshman of the Year in 2008, along with being a second-team all-conference selection. She missed the 2008-09 season with an ankle injury. She was a first-team all-conference pick as a sophomore and junior, and in 2011 she was named a CoSIDA Academic All-American.

Kalin graduated in December 2010 with a degree in movement and exercise science, and she is pursuing a master's degree in kinesiology. She will petition for a medical hardship in order to return for a sixth season.
